Test Google Fonts for Gurmukhi Script (Punjabi) – Prepare

Testing Google (not limited to) fonts with Linux. UTRRS is tool, which I am going to use to compare feature and verify shapes.

Google Noto Fonts: http://www.google.com/get/noto

Gurmukhi Fonts: http://www.google.com/get/noto/#/family/noto-sans-guru

Download from here: http://www.google.com/get/noto/pkgs/NotoSansGurmukhi-hinted.zip

Which font to selected – Note for Developer:

Use unhinted fonts for Android and Mac (Android and Mac ignore hinting information embedded in fonts).
Use hinted fonts for other platforms.

1. Unzip file

2. install

$  sudo cp NotoSansGurmukhi* /usr/share/fonts/google-noto/
$ fc-cache /usr/share/fonts/google-noto/

3. Confirm if it is working for your Script

$ fc-list |grep Gurmukhi
/usr/share/fonts/google-noto/NotoSansGurmukhi-Bold.ttf: Noto Sans Gurmukhi:style=Bold
/usr/share/fonts/google-noto/NotoSansGurmukhiUI-Bold.ttf: Noto Sans Gurmukhi UI:style=Bold
/usr/share/fonts/google-noto/NotoSansGurmukhiUI-Regular.ttf: Noto Sans Gurmukhi UI:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/google-noto/NotoSansGurmukhi-Regular.ttf: Noto Sans Gurmukhi:style=Regular

4. Open UTRRS: http://utrrs-testing.rhcloud.com/

5. Select Language from Left

UTRRS_Testing_1

6. Add font name in “Please enter font family name” (same as Bold text in Step 3)

UTRRS_Testing_2

 

Now you are ready to do Testing for Fonts with UTRRS.

Reference is Image data

Character/Text is data with Selected fonts (Noto Sans Gurmukhi)

Compare Reference with Character (for Code Ponits, GSUB, GPOS)

with Next post try to put information regarding Gurmukhi Fonts and some comparsion with Lohit on Fedora 20/21

NetworkManager issues with Fedora 15

Fedora 15 works very well on Sony YB (AMD fusion) laptop, including sound, graphics, network, bluetooth.

After updating NetworkManager from:

NetworkManager-0.8.999-2.git20110509.fc15.i686

NetworkManager-gnome-0.8.999-2.git20110509.fc15.i686

NetworkManager-glib-0.8.999-2.git20110509.fc15.i686

to Next update 0.8.999-3:

NetworkManager-0.8.999-3.git20110526.fc15.i686

NetworkManager-gnome-0.8.999-3.git20110526.fc15.i686

NetworkManager-glib-0.8.999-3.git20110526.fc15.i686

Fedora Bug: 708445

it is not effecting all machines, but many people reported that same issue.

you need to download packages (on other machine) and update on effected machine.

Another NetworkManager Crashing issue with same version is Bug 708626

Sony Vaio + Fedora 13 works perfectly – BIOS needs hack

Finally Sony Vaio Z 13.3 Series problem with Fedora 13 Fixed, but need to hack bios for this, but which Graphics card need to change for Static instead of Dynamic. (laptop has hybrid GPU).

To work it properly you need to hack BIOS of your laptop as explained HERE. I used following steps, it is easy and state forward, but there is RISK (so please take care).

Downloads (on Windows machine):

1) advanced_menu.zip – Script to Convert simple Bios -> Adav

2) Flashit tool (Download from: http://www.sendspace.com/file/aplu0n)

3)UNetbootin – Create Bootable disk with freeDos

4) Portable Python – to run Advance_menu.py script

Todo:

1) Install Portable Python on USB Drive

2) copy Flashit to USB Drive

3) copy advanced_menu.py to USB Drive -> <PortablePython_1.1_py2.6.1>/App/

Steps: (NOTE: if get any error anywhere, please don’t go forward and try to ask question in forum here)

1) Use UNetbootin to Download & install FreeDos (~4MB)

2) Copy files as said in TODO

3) Reboot and Boot to ‘Free Dos Live CD’ option

4) run commands

$A:>B:

$B:> flashit.exe dump.rom /g

5) Reboot your machine in Windows

6) Copy dump.rom to USBDrive/PortablePython_1.1_py2.6.1/App/

6) open ‘cmd’ and goto USB’s Portable Python Directory (USB Dirve/PortablePython_1.1_py2.6.1/App)

7) run command

python advanced_menu.py dump.rom new.rom

8) reboot your machine and boot from USB Drive with FreeDOS option

9) run command as following

A:>B:

B:>flashit.exe new.rom /f

10) Computer will automatically rebooted and press F2 to goto bios

11) Setting in BIOS is following:

F2->BIOS->Advanced->Peripheral Config.->VGA Switching Policy: Auto (Change to “Static”).

Now boot in Fedora, remove ‘nomodeset’ option in kernel at boot time.

I got 1600×900 resolution with Nvidia 330M (which detected properly), with kernel-2.6.34.5-44.fc13.x86_64

Few bugs fixed are Nvidia

How to boot Meeo with Fedora / Windows…

After installing windows and Fedora 13, I installed Meego, which was actually mistake as Meego is not able to read ‘ext4’ parition (fedora use ext4 for boot also) and if you try to boot it, it is not grub.conf entry to add.

Finally I tried to use ‘rescue’ disk and run ‘grub-install /dev/sda’ to reset MBR for Fedora. With MBR, my grub.conf (/etc/grub.conf) is

title Fedora (2.6.33.6-147.2.4.fc13.i686)
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.33.6-147.2.4.fc13.i686 ro root=UUID=f509255f-e169-4830-8d0b-030ad757a3fe rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_LVM rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM LANG=pa_IN.UTF-8 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.33.6-147.2.4.fc13.i686.img
title MeeGo
rootnoverify (hd0,4)
chainloader +1
title Windows 7
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Now if select Meego then Meego Boot menu appear  and meego is working fine.

So, if you want to install Meego with any other linux, install as following:

1) Windows (if you want)

2) Meego

3) then Fedora or any other Linux (which can detect Meego Boot loader).

Fedora on vaio Z-series

Vaio z-series laptop (model VPCZ126GG Profile) has RAID 0 (hardware raid), which created single partition on 2 SSD Disks.

If you want to install fedora on that, need to delete RAID, which means delete of whole disk data. If you plan to restore later or install windows, you need to back whole disk (125GB) before touch RAID configuration. (fedora need Boot partition out of RAID and that is somehow trick part (by using pen drive to boot)) and also need to get Windows DVD as Sony Vaio is not provide with this model

RAID Remove:

go to BIOS (try Esc or F1 during boot, Adance-> RAID (select Show).

Now after boot, press Ctrl+i, it will show your RAID Configuration. Select ‘Delete RAID Data’ and Select one disk and repeat for 2nd Disk.

After removing RAID, your computer is OS Free. Now your system will show two disks with Windows or Linux (with RAID only 1 disk).

Windows install:

if need to install windows, then install it first and keep in mind that Windows 7 has no good support for this VAIO model. No Ethernet, no wireless. So you need to know/download driver for Ethernet minimal (so get update from Internet). Download from Sony Site (on Pen drive). All other installation is normal.

Linux Install:

Fedora 13 installation is NOT smooth, default option is not working for installation, you need to set ‘nomodeset’ before you hit enter with boot from CD/DVD by press tab.

after it boot, no GUI installation possible, but text or VNC. if need to configure Disk partition, need to use VNC only (no disk partitioning possible in Text mode).

do installation. after reboot, you will get text mode as installation was in text mode (with vnc also), you need to set GUI by swap 3-> 5 in /etc/inittab/

installing kmod-nvidia is not going to help, but drop you in only text model.

Maximum display resolution you can get 1024×800. Even your monitor can support other (1600×900). Fedora bug for Display

Touch Pad is NOT working for this model, need to use external mouse. Fedora bug for Touch Pad.

Overall Linux/Fedora support is bad as Mouse is not totally work, installation is not GUI and display is overall bad till date.
